  • Mark McCabe's Stance on ACT Construction Safety Laws - Work Safety Hub
    the inquiry report says the opposite the inquiry findings revealed that not all construction companies are complying with their legislative obligations Usually such companies are written off as rogue elements often undercutting local businesses through practices like dodging compliance with local laws McCabe has brought into question Where might these additional costs come from if not from more safety laws What does the inquiry report recommend if it doesn t call for additional legislative requirements According to the Getting Home Safely report it is proposing some solutions to the current safety laws It urged to improve the capacity of the regulator Work Safe ACT to impose sanctions and catch those who are not fully complying with the work safety laws It also recommends the Australian government to improve the procurement processes needed to compensate construction companies that are already complying with safety laws Those who don t shall be penalised accordingly It s a matter of suggesting what the government should put into place the right processes to assure that once a building contract has been won the company who won the bid should abide what it said it would do The inquiry report also urged the work safety regulators to be efficient the way it spends money on training of construction companies by reducing the training focus on paperwork rather than actual work practices The training should also offer better guidance through representative bodies on how construction firms should go about complying their legislative obligations However the Commissioner is more concerned on additional taxes What about the new levy to pay for the cost of regulation will this add to business costs and further weigh down on construction companies I don t think so says Neil Evans from the Housing Industry of Australia He has said that the 0 015 per cent additional charge on workers compensation premiums seem quite reasonable and has no impact at all Additionally this should not cause a concern when similar levies are likewise applied in almost every other state in Australia Mr Evans argued that instead of focusing on perceived additional costs they should look at the broader perspective of cost savings that it might be create which will benefit the construction industry as a whole Safe Work Australia s published industry data showed that ACT has the worst safety record in the nation with the exception of Tasmania The data revealed that ACT exceeded the national average and has more than 30 serious injuries in every 1 000 construction workers Some modest safety improvements in the safety regulations would not hurt at all Majority of the construction companies are paying 7 to 8 and even higher of its wages and salaries in workers compensation premiums and a 0 015 additional levy should not hurt at all Making the right changes would result to win win outcomes for both the employers and workers A construction company is said to be committed to work safety practices when it undertakes improvements in its safety policies
